Following orders. After Browns Ravine jumps/berms were bulldozed a few months ago, I remember reading that a ranger told someone that GB was next. FLSRA apparently had to do their normal full environmental review before bulldozing. They didn't destroy any of the "social trails" at Browns.... so hopefully they don't mess with the social trails at GB either. Seems like its the jumps that concern them most. I'm sure it all gets rebuilt... and it'll take another 6 years of paperwork/environmental review for them to bulldoze them again.Low quality picture, but you get the idea. I wonder if those rangers standing around feel like they accomplished a worthy task, or were just following instruction from the higher ups.
That dude is a blight on the park system no matter where they shuffle him around too. And I don’t mean from just a non-equestrian user groups perspective. I literally can feel my blood pressure rise when I see someone refer to him.For those keeping score at home, this is a regular thing every 4 to 10 years. Its the "Etch-A-Sketch Bike Park"! And until Jim M. retires from FLSRA, there's likely zero chance anything exciting for bicycling will happen at FLSRA.
Just went down the Folsom Lake rabbit hole. Seems like the non bike riding locals are pretty hostile, similar to Marin County. Remember, Horses are a non native species and definitely have an impact on the environment. How many endangered beetles get squished by horses ?For those keeping score at home, this is a regular thing every 4 to 10 years. Its the "Etch-A-Sketch Bike Park"!

Right. Because the Rangers make the rules.On my way out of the park I saw a ranger parked by the beach. I went out of my way to go give him the bird. Fawk State Parks.
With the new format, the latest stuff shows up front and center for everyone, regardless of region.the amount of people that come into the norcal forums just to add a pointless comment is kind of ridiculous. you must be really bored at work.
